I Took A Break (And You Should, Too)

September 24, 2018

I took the weekend off. That sounds like a very anticlimactic statement, but the thing is, I haven’t done that (like REALLY done that) since I started this journey as a digital entrepreneur. After three years of pretty much constant connection to my work, I felt a break was necessary. Not just any break, but a delete-all-my-apps and put-my-phone-away-for-three-days break.…

Jekyll Island Girls Trip

Did you catch my Instagram stories over this last weekend? Charlie and I went to Jekyll Island with Chanel from Chanel Moving Forward and her daughter for a girls weekend. We thought it would be a great place to take the girls for a couple days of “Mommy and Me” time. Jekyll Island is off the coast of Brunswick, GA and right about five hours from our home in the Atlanta area.…

2017 Blog Report + Reader Survey

December 29, 2017

My grandmama always said “the older you get, the faster time goes” and she couldn’t be more right. It seems like every year flies by faster. 2017 marked the second full year of having my blog. It was no easy feat keeping it going while managing a household, two cross-country moves, a pregnancy, then three kids… BUT. It happened. We stayed afloat. I posted when I could and worked harder than ever. I am so proud of my community here,…

Goodbye Twelve & Six, Hello Typical Katie.

September 8, 2017

Happy Friday people! I am admittedly the slackest blogger on earth lately. If anyone can tell me how to continue adulting and mothering WHILE maintaining my blog, I would love to know the secrets. No, but seriously. I promise I have new posts coming up that are GOOD. One thing you may have noticed here and on social media is a NAME CHANGE. I debated a formal announcement and originally decided against it. However, I decided maybe it would be…

Building Our Tribe | Wine Country Blogger Brunch

August 15, 2017

I have said before that the best part about blogging is undoubtedly the relationships I have made. I was nervous when I moved to Wine Country that I would have a hard time connecting with a blogger community here. When you work from home in such a specific industry, it’s so important to have a tribe of women who understand the ins and outs of the “biz” and can be a valuable support and sounding board. Professional bloggers are usually,…

The Entrepreneur Files | How I Invest In My Blog

March 13, 2017

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, Walmart Family Mobile. All opinions are mine alone. #YourTaxCash #CollectiveBias Now that it’s Tax Season, I can sit back and look at my first year of professional blogging on paper. I have worked really hard and have been very blessed to have totally matched (and exceeded) my previous full time income. However, don’t mistake being self-employed for an easy ride. I have learned a lot the hard way,…

The Entrepreneur Files | Blogging FAQs

September 14, 2016

This post was inspired and sponsored by Domain.ME, the provider of the personal domains that end in .ME. As a company, they aim to promote thought leadership to the tech world. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Next month, I will have been professionally blogging for a year. Some of you are probably like “a year? that’s it?” and some of you are probably like “she has only been blogging for a year?!” I can assimilate with both of…
